Moto Z2 Force Owners Complain That The Shattershield Coating Is Peeling Off
The Moto Z2 Force was launched in July as the next iteration in Moto’s ‘Z’ lineup. With a shattershield coating on top, the company claimed that the display won’t crack after a few drops. However, thanks to the plastic coating, the device is prone to minor scratches that can increase a lot in the long run.
It appears that the plastic coating comes with its own set of issues. Moto Z2 Force users have complained that the shattershield plastic coating has started peel off from their devices. People have posted images of their Moto Z2 Force to demonstrate the extent of the problem. In some cases, the issue seems minimal but, there are images where the plastic coating is dangling from the display.
Don't bother with this, the z2 force has SERIOUS PEELING ISSUES with the shattershield, I've had mine for less than 4 months and it looks like a 2 year old phone. The jbl sound boost speaker Moto mod is already blown and battery is atrocious

Most of the times, the peeling off starts from around the fingerprint sensor and front camera. Also, unlike the Moto Z Force, Motorola did not intend to have a removable plastic coating. This means that fixing the issue yourself will not help. While some users have been able to get a replacement device from Motorola, others have been told that display issue is not covered.
Moto Z2 Force Overview
The Moto Z2 Force has a 5.5 inch shattershield display with a 2560 x 1440 px resolution.
Under the hood, the device has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. The storage is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card. The fingerprint sensor is placed on the front of the smartphone as it retains the size and design of a ‘Moto Z’ device. This is done to maintain compatibility with Moto Mods.
The Moto Z2 Force has a dual 12MP f/2.0 camera setup on the back. One of them has an RGB sensor while the other one has a monochrome sensor. On the front of the smartphone is a 5MP camera with a dual-tone LED flash.
